    So, I currently have my website set up here: https://dc87sbeamngdrivecarinstructions.com/

    Currently, you can only pay through PayPal for now, but I hope to set up alternate payment methods for those who don't want to use PayPal sometime in the future.

    Here's what's for sale in the first batch:

    Vehicles:

    Anyway, to respond to a few of your comments...

    Thanks! I'm not sure I'll have much use for it, but I'm sure that someone I'm working with will...

    Yeah, the Burnside (and Bluebuck to an extent) are both examples of the struggles of building vehicle frames with two different widths. Sure, making cabs and roofs of different widths from the frame/rest of vehicle (like the T-Series's and Burnside's) is dead simple, especially on smaller vehicles with comparatively tiny roofs. But frames? Well...that's a whole 'nother story.

    This is exactly what I set out to avoid as much as possible with my LEGO models. I believe that (other than the H-Series, T-Series and the Wentward), if you don't mind having your cars looking the exact same color and tearing them up every time you wanted to build a new car, you could build every standard-size vehicle with just 200-300 basic pieces you could find just about anywhere.

    Yes. Instructions should be out sometime this evening.

    Honestly, I'm not sure if I could add my models into Brick Rigs. From what I remember (haven't played it in years), BR doesn't have a lot of the pieces I'd need to build replicas of my vehicles in there, especially brackets and stuff like that.

    Currently, there is only one free instruction booklet, the Gavril D15 V8 4WD, but I intend upon making a small free instruction pack that'll include a few basic items like a trailer and a couple small props.

    How do I/you do what? Make the instructions or download the instructions?

    If it's download the instructions, then you should click on the big black button near the bottom of the page.

    If it's make the instructions...that's a much longer story.

    Just a suggestion, maybe you could also sell a little booklet with some ticks and tricks and the building techniques you used to make your cars. I find that important so people can also learn from it and not only blindly build the car and be done with it. Maybe also feature some used on the specific car in the instructions of that car in that car's instruction booklet?

    I'm thinking of doing something like this once I have enough models on the site. However, I'll definitely be including trailer hitch techniques with every trailer release, just so that people have some idea on how to connect the trailers to the vehicles.

    Speaking of trailers, the free Small Flatbed trailer has been released! Check it out! https://dc87sbeamngdrivecarinstructions.com/product/small-flatbed-trailer/

    So, today, I don't think I'll be releasing any new content to my site, but here's a sneak preview of some things to come:

    BALLWF.png
    First off, I've built the Ball.

    Second, @DevilisticJosh has been putting my LEGO models into BeamNG.drive as drivable vehicles (I believe these are just mesh slaps for now, but I could be wrong). Currently, he has the Bolide and the D-Series in the game.

    And Piccolina, and they have some slight modification to make it fit a bit more

    So, currently, I'm planning on making a free Demo Pack, much like the official BeamNG demo. Along with the D-Series and Small Flatbed Trailer, I'm also including a bunch of small items and obstacles and other things.

    How big is it, and how many pieces does it have? I might be making instructions for vehicles basically double the size of my current ones, but if that engine is a big one (greater than 100 pieces), then I'm not exactly interested.

    Anyway, I've completed instructions for the Bluebuck, and will release them tomorrow morning.
